[Devlin]
It's D.E.V.- L.I.N your girlfriend thinks I'm handsome
I brainwash your mind like Derren Brown or Charlie Manson
You won't suggest I'm random when I take the scene for ransom
And I'm packing out stadiums with the fans singing my anthems
Dirty like Lesley Grantham
This is my manipulation
So forget the speculation on all the trials and tribulations
That I've faced along the way because now I've changed my situation
My names lodged up in your brain just like a blade in an operation
But now their all discussing me in their everyday conversation
Assisting me to spread the word so brace for an invasion
Neurological science I'll give you braincells re-wired
My names Devlin and I'm just tryna gain entry to your mind

[Chorus: Jodie Connor]
I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
That one day you'd know my name
A few years older now I'm singing
Ayo ayo remember me
Do you do you remember me!

But now your being brainwashed.
They never knew what my name was
But now your being brainwashed

[Devlin]
You better recognize my name just like your family members
My flows so tremendous shining like a thousand embers
We came to take over your town til every man surrenders
And kidnap your vocabulary until my name is all that man remembers
You never knew me when my life was dark and gloomy
But now my life is like a movie starring role yours truly
So familiarize yourself with the cast upon the set
If your unaware of how I'm moving then you ain't heard bars yet
Naah!
I'm Mr fire mic just like David Blaine and Paul McCenna
Hypnotism different frame of mind whenever I pick the pen up
So in the future if you remember any name again
Make a mental note of 6 letters D.E.V.L.I.N.!

[Chorus: Jodie Connor]
I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
That one day you'd know my name
A few years older now I'm singing
Ayo ayo remember me
Do you do you remember me

But now you're being brainwashed
They never knew what my name was
But now you're being brainwashed

D.E.V.L.I.N make sure you remember me
D.E.V.L.I.N brainwashing your memory
D.E.V.L.I.N standing where I'm meant to be
Make sure you remember me, make sure you remember me

D.E.V.L.I.N make sure you remember me
D.E.V.L.I.N brainwashing your memory
D.E.V.L.I.N standing where I'm meant to be
Make sure you remember me, make sure you remember me
[Repeat in the background:]
(O.T. Bud sweat and beers.
D.E.V.L.I.N standing where I'm meant to be
Now I'm here, now I'm here!)

[Chorus: Jodie Connor]
I fought up my corner, didn't I warn ya,
That one day you'd know my name
A few years older now I'm singing
Ayo ayo remember me
Do you do you remember me
